Congregational Women’s Fellowship Luncheon May 21Published 6:22pm Thursday, May 10, 2012
On Monday, May 21, the Women’s Fellowship of the Congregational Church in Tryon will host a special luncheon. A social time will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by a catered luncheon at noon and a presentation by Clara Gandy at 12:45 p.m.
Gandy, a member of the church’s congregation, has a Ph.D in history and taught college history for many years. She will speak about the importance of the King James edition of the Bible as it reveals the religious and political tensions of the first 100 years of the Protestant Reformation in Europe. Great controversy surrounded the writing and publication of the Holy Scriptures into the languages of the common people.
In 1611, King James I of England authorized the publication of the Bible. Today, 400 years later, the work continues to have literary as well as scriptural importance around the world.
All interested congregation and community members are invited to attend. There is no charge for anyone wanting to attend only the program at 12:45 p.m.
Reservations for the luncheon are requested by noon on Thursday, May 17. Call 828-894-0197, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 828-859-9414.
